FIELD & FOUNDRY

This past weekend saw the inaugural Field & Foundry event – a series of dinners bringing together makers + creatives in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Hosted by Laicie Heeley of A Thousand Threads + photographer Melissa Hope (and presented in partnership with Bing, West Elm, Artifact Uprising, and more), the night was unbelievably beautiful, and I was honored to be included.

With the mission statement of "bringing creatives to the table," about twenty of us headed into Virginia farmland for incredible food, wine, and getting to know our tablemates. It was a blast to catch up with friends –  Christine of Young Frankk, A Daily Something's Rebecca, Joy of Mornings Like These, and more – and to make a few new ones, as well.

The night ended with a discussion led by Trouvé Mag founder Amanda Marko (she is a PEACH, you guys, and wildly talented. I'm a big fan of Volume 1) about all things C R E A T I V E  P R O J E C T, and it was refreshing to hear input + points of view from people whose work + creative contributions not only ran the gamut, but who were based in places other than DC. Also the night ended with a spread of BAKED GOODS from Laicie + her husband's Dough Uprising. I basically floated home on a piece of cherry pie.

Huge thanks to Field & Foundry for having me – they've got two more dinners planned for 2014, and you can keep an eye on the project via their Instagram and website. More photos after the jump!

KITCHEN SINK NO. 25

Kitchen Sink No. 25

Nashville, Tennessee

I met Jennifer Jeremias what feels like a million years ago when she was living in DC; a jewelry designer and metalsmith (with some seriously amazing forays into all things vintage + flea market), her work is statement-making, her style is unmistakably hers, and her Instagram feed is a personal fave. She's since moved to Nashville, TN – above, her perfect, perfectly blue kitchen sink.
